Saturday lunch...Nougatine
dinner...SD26

Sunday brunch...Maialino
dinner...Degustation but i need a backup in case we cannot get in. They are now open on Sunday but will not take reservations.
Thanks!

    How 'bout DBGB for Friday dinner, either in the bar room or dining room. Great menu and super drinks and desserts. And after a big lunch at Gotham, there are smaller portions of sausages so you can leave room for the great desserts!! Really good drinks as well, with a bunch of different beers on tap.

      You've really done your homework, trish, you have a great list so far. For Friday I would pick Tabla for Indian/New American fusion, Marseille for Provencal/Moroccan, Perilla for new American, or La Petite Auberge for classic old-school French bistro. None of these are seafood-specific but all have some excellent seafood choices. I would be very surprised if Degustation is filled on Sunday, but if so you only have to walk about 50 feet to Rhong-Tiam for some superb Thai food.

        I am spinning my wheels!
        DBGB looks great except I would never order sausages.
        Tabla looks a bit too expensive.
        been to Perilla...loved it!
        I think I want something like Perilla or like Balthazar...if that makes any sense at all.
        Again, thanks for all your help so far. Three more weeks to wait.

          I just re-checked the menus at Tabla and Perilla, and the prices are pretty much identical. Another possibility for food that is more similar to Perilla is 10 Downing, but there have been chef changes and I haven't tried it recently.

            10 downing looks good.
            Also looking at Pulino for the pizza.
            Is Bar Artisinal any good?

              I've been wondering about 10 Downing ever since I found out that Shuna Lydon, who was highly regarded in the Bay Area, is now the pastry chef there. Her style is distinctive - lots of savory-sweet interplay. I actually never got a chance to try her stuff while she was here and am putting 10 Downing on my list for my next trip just for dessert.

              You can certainly have something else at DBGB other than sausages.

              Perhaps, Cercle Rouge? Although it's been around for quite a while, we had dinner there for the first time a few weeks ago. Delicious food and wonderful French brasserie ambiance.
